Yark, Charlie's vying to be Toledo's Fiat store


Yark Automotive Group in Sylvania Township and Charlie's Dodge Chrysler Jeep Inc. in Maumee are competing to become metropolitan Toledo's new Fiat dealer.

Fiat SpA, which partly owns Chrysler Group LLC, expects to pick 165 Chrysler dealers nationwide that will sell Fiat vehicles in the United States later this year. Toledo is one of Fiat's targeted markets.

Denny Amrhein, managing partner of Charlie's Dodge, said yesterday his dealership and Yark were the only two local stores that were invited to submit Fiat proposals. Mr. Amrhein's other dealership, Grogan's Towne Chrysler Jeep Dodge, was not included in the Fiat bid, he said.
